Bulgaria without Dobriyana Rabadzhieva and Strashmira Filipova is not the same at all, they are their most important players in fundamental aspects like reception/blocking and providing a wider space of reliable options for the setter in attack. In this bulgarian team the only solid attacker is Elitsa Vasileva, considering the poor shape of Nikolova. The MBs Bulgaria has now on court is not even close to the level of Strashmira Filipova, and they were bad today, hitting very predictible straight into the block several times.
And for Croatia is missing..Jerkov, Milos, Poljak, Brcic...
Susic is good in blocking and she will maybe take spot of Miloš, Senna is in top shape.She is really good and her blocking for OH is amazing.
